Fox Station in Orlando calls Neo-Nazis a "civil rights group"

Yes, really:

Civil rights group patrolling Sanford

Florida members of the Detroit-based National Socialist Movement tells FOX35 they are patrolling the streets of Sanford.

The white rights organization says several Sanford citizens have called on them fearing their safety.

The group's commander talked with FOX35 Saturday about their presence in the now racially divided Florida town where Trayvon Martin was shot and killed by George Zimmerman.


It's nice to know that supporters of a genocidal, racist fuckwit like Hitler are just a bunch of harmless civil rights activists. Stay classy, Fox.

UPDATE: The original headline got a lot of notice, being mentioned at blogs like Firedoglake and Little Green Footballs, and was even re-tweeted by Charles M. Blow of the NYT. Fox Orlando's reaction? Changing the headline.

The new article: White rights group patrolling Sanford

Hey, Fox? It's okay to call them Nazis. That's what they call themselves.

Looks like it's been taken down now and replaced with a NY Post article that, yes, uses the term "Neo-Nazis." But still!
